Mid March

Mid March


At last, the sun is brightly shining, (well until this weekend!) flowers and trees have popped into a spring palette that takes your breath away, (especially if you are highly allergic to pollen like I am) and the Rivercats....our very own "Boys of Summer," are back on the field. Opening Day is just two weeks away(Thank Goodness) and all is well with the world! What a glorious time of year to live in the River City! This is definitely Sacramento at her finest!

                                                

It doesn't matter where you drive, walk or bicycle in our fair city...trees are bursting with blossoms, gardens are spilling tulips, daffodils and freesia and people just seem happy to be alive!  We took a lovely walk downtown and visited the Francis exhibit at the Crocker. His various "phases" of art are breathtaking.  Did you know he had spinal tuberculosis and spent 18 hours a day suspended in the air.  He painted with so many influences and eventually became a celebrated  abstract painter. Some of the huge canvases take your breath away. Phenomenal!  What a great luxury to have such a brilliant museum that hosts such wonderful art treasure exhibits!  Heavenly!  A family pass is an absolute must have! Don't forget the Georgia O'Keeffe (she is Jack's She-ro) exhibit in San Fransisco at the DeYoung ends on May 11th! 



         

Our thirsty garden has loved the rainfall!  Every little plant seems to be reaching up to the storm clouds desperate to quench its thirst after a long dry spell.  It looks as though we will have a need for a few re-plantings but the kids are excited and in the next week or so they will trudge back out to weed and search for snails. 
      


If you have a tiny corner in your yard where little hands can craft a garden...this is the perfect time to do it!  Beans, radishes, corn, sunflowers, lettuce and so many more veggies and flowers can be started in small containers and then transplanted to a child's garden.  Third graders are responsible and invested when they are given the chance to be the caretakers of a small garden.  What a fun adventure for you and your child to plan the garden, buy the seeds or seedlings and plant!  A little sun, a little water, a little song and a lot of love will grow a garden and a closer connection between you and your child!
